MK Shelly Yacimovich (Labor) was sworn in as opposition leader, giving her first speech in that capacity in Wednesday’s plenum meeting.

Labor called a press conference hours before Yacimovich took her new position to say that they will lead a “true” opposition, as opposed to Kadima’s “farce of an opposition.”

“No party is more suited than Labor to head the opposition,” Yacimovich said. “Kadima was not an alternative for one minute.”

Yacimovich pointed out that the opposition is one of the smallest in Israel’s history, with a wide, complex range of opinions, but she will lead them all.
